Bill Wyman new book: ‘Stones From the Inside.’ Rare Unseen Images

0

Stones From the Inside: Rare and Unseen Images, Bill Wyman, a photographer and former bassist of The Rolling Stones, provides intimate access to the legendary rock band as they’ve never been seen before.

I joined The Rolling Stones in December 1962. After some success, I was able, a few years later, to purchase my first serious camera—a Nikkormat, together with a 135 Nikon lens—in Paris, France. From that time on I began to take photos in earnest, both at home and on tour with The Rolling Stones, preferring, for some reason, to photograph subjects when they were not aware of my camera, or were otherwise occupied.

 

I took them mainly to illustrate my daily diaries. I’ve continued to take photographs, even to the present day. I’ve been lucky enough to have met—and in some instances, become close friends with—several photographers over the years. I’ve been continually inspired by their work, and when the camera was focused on me, I always paid close attention, in hopes that I would be able to hone my own photographic art into something a little bit better than just taking ‘snaps.’” —BILL WYMAN

As soon as Bill Wyman was given a camera as a young boy, he quickly developed a passion for photography. After joining what would become the world’s greatest rock ‘n’ roll band, Wyman continued his hobby. When he didn’t have his bass, he had his camera. The result is an arresting, insightful and often poignant collection of photographs, showing his exclusive inside view of the band. From travelling to relaxing, backstage and on, Stones From the Inside is a unique view captured by a man who was there, every step of the way.

Along with the images of the band at work and play, Wyman includes remarkable images of those along for the ride, from John Lennon, Eric Clapton, David Bowie and Iggy Pop to John Belushi and Dan Aykroyd. To accompany his photographs, Wyman offers up wonderful insights, anecdotes and behind-the-photo stories, giving all us a front-row seat and backstage pass to what it was like to be there, as music history was made as a member of The Rolling Stones.

Bill Wyman was the bassist for the Rolling Stones between 1962 and 1993. An avid photographer from a young age, he started experimenting with a camera at 11. However, it wasn’t until a tour in Paris, 1966, that he started to take it seriously. Since then, he has exhibited in galleries across the globe. Wyman now enjoys photographing landscapes and wildlife.
